  • The outward appearance is similar to the Tuber magnatum, they share an irregular, smooth and white colour even if they become darker when ripe. Also the gleba at first white later on becomes dark . What really distinguishes this kind of truffle from the white ones is the fragrance, at the beginning it is fine and pleasant but then in a second moment it becomes strong and garlicky. It grows in calcareous areas especially in conifer woods.

    Market value:
    It is a highly priced truffle especially in Italy.

    Recently significant quantities were found in the Balkans, especially in Bulgaria and Greece.

    Other names:
    Bianchetto, Cercuse truffle, Tuscany white truffle, Marzuolo
